Hullo, I would like to parse page: that, as you may see, is regularly accessible.
Yet, when I try to access it through the php script at: ... tLines.php in order to parse its content, I receive error:
Warning: file_get_contents( [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error in /iPhone/simplehtmldom_1_5/simple_html_dom.php on line 70
The contents of the php is the following:

Code: Select all

// Create DOM from URL or file
echo $url;
$html = file_get_html($url);
echo $html;
foreach($html->find('option') as $content) 

What might be the business and I could I fix the problem?

Thanks, Fabrizio Bartolomucci

If you're looking to parse the contents of a page, you're better off using CURL. Here's an example

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,"");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 60);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 60);
$content = curl_exec($ch);

This will put the entire contents of the google homepage into the $content variable.
